Improving Teacher-Student Contact in a Campus through a Location-Based Mobile Application
Ferreira, Vítor Manuel; Ramos, Fernando
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Conference e-Learning 2014. Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (Lisbon, Portugal, Jul 15-19, 2014)
This paper presents a new mobile micro-broadcast (or near-me) Location-Based Service designed to promote face-to-face communication among users located within a given geographical area such as a University campus. Because the communication services provided are time dependent, the application decides whom to contact based on the geographic distance between the active subscribers of the service and the sender. The paper also presents some preliminary results of prototype evaluation. [For full proceedings, see ED557189.]
